Shipping / Pick-up / Delivery Information


We can ship most trees using UPS, SpeeDee Delivery or the Postal Service, however four days is about the maximum transit time to allow for healthy plants on the other end.  Please note that with many of our trees and shrubs that are offered bare-root the shipping is free on orders of $350 or more.  Hybrid Willows are always sold with shipping by ground least expensive delivery service. All shipping is based on USA shipping locations only, and does not include any special handling, packaging considerations, or shipping outside of the USA.  All additional costs we would incur would need to be passed along to the customer.  Email any questions to me at  JOEL@KARSTENNURSERY.COM 


We do not maintain regular retail hours at our nursery, however if you would really like to drive and pick up your order, we can arrange to meet you and load your vehicle or truck at a specific time.  We do not offer a discount if you pick up your order, sorry.  You will need to call or email us to make arrangements. We are required to collect sales tax for any order that is picked up, and for all sales in Minnesota.  JOEL@KARSTENNURSERY.COM

Deliveries by truck

If you place a large order, or any order for containerized stock, your order will likely ship by truck.  We work with several local trucking companies to get a competitive price for delivery.  You will be kept informed about the delivery date of your shipment, and you will be responsible for unloading the truck when it arrives at your location.
